Vancouver in Early July

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have scheduled our flight from Texas into Vancouver for 10 days in early July. It may seem like a leap of faith, but now I'm counting on my Fodor's Friends to help me make it a great trip. We know little about the area and this will be our first visit. We love to hike, boat, and explore the outdoors, but also enjoy the occasional wine tasting, museum, or unique restaurant.

My initial question is can I do everything from a single base out of Vancouver, or will we need to move once or twice. So far I'm thinking about 1) a couple separate day trips to Whistler and Squamish for hiking; 2) Whale watching; 3) Rent a motor boat to explore some of the river areas; 4) a trip to Hope to walk or bike the trails that were converted rail lines; 5) Stanley Park; 6) Explore the Water Front: 7) _______.

I would appreciate any feedback on my list. It's ok to tell me it's lame and offer other suggestions. ;) Do you have thoughts on anything I've mentioned? I'm also looking for more to add. Should we include Vancouver Island/Victoria? Can we do that with one or two day trips, or would that require a move? We've done the California Wine country several times, so I was thinking we would not go east into the wine country. Is that a mistake? I hope I haven't booked to many days between our flight travel, but I was excited about our first trip to BC.

Thank you in advance for any advice!!!
